According to Cambridge Dictionary, the term “Agile (manage-ment)” is “used for describing ways of planning and doing work in which it is understood that making changes as they are need-ed is an important part of the job.” In the IT industry, this term appeared at the beginning of 2000s, when the “Manifesto for Agile Software Development” was published. Since then, the term “agile” has come to refer to a set of “flexible” approaches software development.
Some people believe the only specialists needed to create some are software developers, or engineers, as they are the ones writ-ing the code that makes the ordering client’s dreams come true.

This isn’t not because the clients and developers are unwilling to communicate, but because they’re thinking on very different levels.
The year 2020 has introduced new and unusual realities all over the world. The global COVID-19 pandemic and the consequent quarantine and self-isolation have meant that millions of us work remotely these days. As a result, we are relying on tech-nology and various software solutions more than ever to get things done. A new study by Business Facilities shows that “Business VPN usage skyrocketed in Canada, Austria, and the Netherlands, growing by over 200%.”
We often write about the complexity of custom software projects — the need for clearly outlined requirements, the carefully drafted roadmaps, and the flexibility to make adjustments when the developers encounter obstacles or the client requests a change.

The key is the service level agreement (SLA), which is a contract between vendor and specifies the level of service expected during the engagement.
